Drone collides with commercial aeroplane in Canada

Drone collides with commercial aeroplane in Canada”

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada initiated an investigation into the collision between a drone and a passenger aircraft near the Quebec City airport last Thursday. The crew noticed the drone near the left wing as the plane approached the runway, then the drone struck the plane - an inspection revealed scratches on the wing.

Unaware of whether or not any of DJI's products were involved in the incident, the Shenzhen-based drone company released an anticipatory statement anyway, stating it "absolutely condemns" irresponsible drone use. It is prohibited in Canada, as it is in the US, to fly a UAV in no-fly zones like airports-you simply don't do it.

In fact, it would also be the first collision between a commercial aircraft and a drone in Canada. Additionally, it stated that "DJI supports the creation of a simple and reasonable system to register drones in Canada, coupled with a strong educational component so drone pilots can easily learn how to fly safely and responsibly". He added that it's a "serious offense" to endanger aircraft in Canada, with potential penalties ranging from fines of up to $20,000 or prison time. "From my perspective, this was bound to happen". Of these cases, 131 were considered a cause for concern for aviation safety.

In June of previous year, a pilot attempting to land at the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport said a drone came within about 82 feet of the plane.

Transport Canada has previously issued a series of interim safety measures for drone operators as it continues to work to regulate the industry.

Local police were called to the scene in each instance, but finding the drone and its owner proved no easy task, which makes enforcing the drone regulations all the more hard.

FAA spokesman Jim Peters said "no incidents or accidents reported to the FAA that have involved a commercial aircraft and an unmanned aircraft [have been confirmed over USA airspace]", when contacted by The New York Post on Monday. "Right now it relies on citizens seeing them in the sky and reporting them".
